I am going to have a major procedure on my spine, but the doctor did not explain the surgical procedure or asked if I have any questions or concerns. He showed me the X-ray for 5 minutes and just left without asking me if I have any questions. So I thought he was coming back, so I did not ask him any questions about the procedure, I did not have a chance.
The people in the office are arrogant and ignorant. They talk to you with an authority of a doctor and with an attitude of their words are final. They also lazy, my radiology was done and I was told that it was sent to their office, but they said they did not receive it. I asked them if they could call for the result, but they wanted me to get it and bring it to the office. They don't seem to care much for the the patients, and that shows when you are in the office
I wasn't too impressed with their office, I could tell they didn't take much pride in it's appearance. They barely gave me any information at all. I'm going to have to do my own research to get my questions answered. They left me completely alone for a long time and I became very nervous. I was very surprised that they didn't want to answer my questions at all. In fact, they just ignored all of my questions. I had a surgery and there after they basically refused to speak with me and ignored me especially the PA Mark I would advise anyone to seek another opinion and other surgeon!
